Look away, Big Blue supporters, as this isn’t what anyone wanted to be reminded of with the end of the regular season almost here. Stop us if you’ve heard this before, but NY Giants wide receiver Kenny Golladay has been a complete and total bust for the NFC East side. Yes, we’re not telling you anything new there.
Golladay inked a four-year, $72 million contract before the 2021 campaign and he was expected to be the No. 1 wideout of the future for Daniel Jones. The opposite has been the case, as Golladay has been on the sidelines for most of the year. Just how bad has Golladay been? Let this stat put things into perspective for you:
NY Giants must release Kenny Golladay as soon as possible
If that makes you tear up, you’re not alone. The fact of the matter here is that Golladay has only caught four balls this campaign for 51 yards. Those are the kinds of stats you’d expect from Golladay in the first half of a single game, but not through 16 contests. With the Giants expected to rest their starters on Sunday, Golladay should see more playing time vs. the Eagles.
However, that playing time will come in a meaningless showdown. The Giants have nothing to play for. Golladay will look to maybe boost his stats a bit and perhaps score the first touchdown of his NY career. It’s wild to even think about, but Golladay indeed is yet to find the end zone while donning a Giants uniform.
Meanwhile, Isaiah Hodgins has been a beast for offensive coordinator Mike Kafka, becoming the reliable option that everyone expected Golladay would be in 2022. With the regular season finale coming in a few days, and then the postseason around the corner, it feels like Golladay’s time with Big Blue will be ending soon.
Straight up, Joe Schoen needs to part ways with this guy as soon as possible. He’ll go down as one of the worst free-agency moves this organization has ever made. Once again, thanks for nothing, Dave Gettleman.
